Bodily harm accused's bail altered

OCEAN SHORES man Nicholas Sharp applied last week to have his bail conditions varied to make it easier for him to meet his current work commitments.

Sharp, 27, along with two co-accused face trial in August charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm on Pottsville man Dallas Arnold at Byron Bay on March 7 last year.

Sharp is also charged with threatening to use unlawful violence towards other persons to cause fear.

Defence lawyer Vince Boss asked Judge James Black for the bail condition that his client report each Monday to Byron Bay police be removed because of his job with an investment firm on the Gold Coast.

Mr Boss said his client had lodged a $100,000 surety with the court and had attended whever required.

Judge Black agreed to remove the reporting condition but instead ordered Sharp to surrender his Australian passport to police.
